What is traditional French cooking?
Often seen as refined and complicated, French cuisine might seem intimidating to some.
However, homemade French food is very different from food served in many French restaurants.
Most traditional recipes come from the countryside and were prepared by women who were busy working in the fields, in factories or running houses and had little time to cook fancy food.
There is often a story behind each of these recipes, and each region in France has its own traditional dishes.
About - Anne Sophie Dubois
Anne Sophie Dubois, comes from a French family where cooking and enjoying food is a serious business. Everyone in her family cooks and recipes are regularly exchanged. Both she and her husband were brought up in wine regions in France and learned soon that matching the right wine with the right food is an important part of a perfect meal.
When she arrived in Australia, Anne-Sophie brought with her that heritage, and she decided to write a French cookbook, focused on countryside and family meals.

Alsatian cuisine is the result of the cultural blend between France and Germany. As Marguerite Spoerlin explained in her book “La Cuisinière Alsacienne” (the Alsatian cook): “In Germany, food is copious but not good. In France food is good but not copious. In Alsace, it is good and copious.”
